2011 Chrysler 300 and 300C: Car Seat Check

This Car Seat Check was first published in June 2011 on MotherProof.com.

Chrysler redesigned its iconic 300 sedan for the 2011 model year. The 300 and more powerful 300C are slightly wider and longer than the car it replaces. This allowed it to fit three child-safety seats in the backseat. For our Car Seat Check, we installed seats in the 300C.

For the Car Seat Check, we use a Graco SnugRide 30 rear-facing infant-safety seat, a Britax Roundabout convertible child-safety seat and Graco high-back TurboBooster seat.

How many car seats fit in the second row? Three. The car seats just fit, but there was enough room for a child’s hand to fit between the booster seat and infant-safety seat when buckling up.

Editor’s note: For three car seats — infant-safety seat, convertible and booster seats — to fit in a car, our criterion is that a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat.
